If You Build It
We are a community of friends
Who believe in learning through experience and the power of collaborative action.
We think that strong communities will improve design
Just as good design will better our communities.
We rarely differentiate between work and play
Because our labours bring us joy, and our playtime's productive.
We don't measure impact
In strict kilowatt-hours
Because we know that some forms of energy
Do not belong on a power bill
Our membership criteria is:
Do what you can, and bring what you have,
While growing an appreciation for the gifts of those around you.
Our lack of expertise
In the projects we attempt
Is essential to the process of
Learning and acting, together.
We become progressively more conscious and aware
By tackling the not-yet-possible.
Our endeavors will evolve through chance and circumstance
In response to the needs of tomorrow.
